Yeah, 'tli you see what looks like drool coming from the side of his mouth petuniaWe spotted this quite bizarre Enda Kenny poster in Castlebar last night
On the contrary, I think the monocle lends an air of class and gravitas that Enda was rather lacking up to now..
‘A big political lie’: A war of words has kicked off between Enda Kenny and Micheál Martin“This was a big political lie,” Martin claimed.
Thanks Anne, given your recommendation, I just had to seek that article out - a few quotes with link @ endStill no Gene Kerrigan in the Indo but Brendan O'Connor is being very unkind about Enda on Prime Time ("shifty" and "furtive").
Well done to O'Connor.Unfortunately, the first visual impression we got of the Taoiseach was shifty. His eyes were shifty and he looked furtive. He looked somewhat like a hunted animal. Perhaps he was trying to look serious and grown-up, as an antidote to the high-fiving buck eejit persona he hides behind when he is out among his people. Or perhaps he was just annoyed or drained by the fact that his appearance had been put off for half an hour to facilitate Eastenders.
Whatever it was, he seemed tense and he got tenser as it went on. He even looked slightly sullen and defensive. Indeed, as the interview went on, you started to wonder if he was angry at Miriam for the crime of asking straightforward questions. As if it was her fault that he is above being questioned.
The questions were pointed at times, but reasonable. If there hadn't been any agreement beforehand on the areas to be covered, the Taoiseach's people should have been able to predict the questions and prepare him well anyway. The frightening thing is, maybe they did. Because he did seem to have a few basic mantras downloaded. Stability means investment means jobs means dignity and salvation was one mantra. That was the answer given to many of the questions, even when it wasn't the answer.
Everything is everyone else's fault except ours, was the other central mantra
And now bold Micheál is challenging our Enda to a TV debate. Based on his recent performance - answering questions without being challenged where he failed miserably - me thinks his 'handlers' won't let him near Montrose again, unless its a scripted, party political broadcast format - addressing the people.Martin also accused Kenny of delivering “a big political lie” in his Prime Time interview last Thursday, taking issue with the assertion that the current government had negotiated €50 billion in savings on its debt pile.

Whatever about his Prime Time interview.. His speech in Castlebar made for cringe viewing...The interview on Prime Time with Enda like the interview with Vinnie and Joan
will be played over and over again,after the long wait and plenty of coaching it
certainly was not Fine Gael finest few minutes.
with the back slapping cronies, & hillbillies that he appointed to 'new' quangos.. was enough to make anyone pukeWhatever about his Prime Time interview.. His speech in Castlebar made for cringe viewing...
''Two words.. three letters...I do'' it really made for nauseating viewing.
